On Sunday, August 19, 2018, my mother, Carmen Mahan, peacefully entered heaven to be with the Lord and my father, Gary Mahan. It’s been well over a month since the funeral and I have not been able to make this post. I was devastated. In some ways, I still am. I could go on about how great and special she was, but I’m already fighting back the tears as it is. I miss her and all I want to do is call her and tell her about my day and hear about hers. But I can’t. And I’m not sad for mom. She is in a better place. I’m just sad for the rest of us, because I know my world has a big hole in it that I don’t know how to fill. I’m trying mom. I know you don’t want me to hurt this much or for this long. I’m taking it 1 day at a time.
Anyway, somebody reminded me that I hadn’t posted the slideshow that I created for mom’s viewing and service yet. So, I’ve worked up the strength to at least do that. I had to remove the nice music that it was set to so that the slideshow doesn’t get taken down due to copyright infringement. I will also see if I can make a photo album of the pictures used to make the slideshow.
